These Are NOT Orange Butterflies


I've just really been a bum the last few days and haven't stamped much so thought I would post an older card I'd done. Actually, I haven't been too much of a bum - it just seems like sometimes life gets in the way of stamping, you know.......

These butterflies are stamped in Cameo Coral but for some reason every time I take a picture of the card, they come out orange! Anyway, I used Baja Breeze, Gray, White, and Walk in the Park DP from SU. The butterflies are from SU Great Friend. After stamping them, I cut them out and then they were popped up on dimensionals. The pearls were added to their bodies and also on the top and the bottom of the center panel. At first I thought that may be just way too many pearls, but then the more I looked at it the more I like all of them on there.

Thanks for stopping by..............

This is a beautiful card, Lynn. I actually just tried playing around with your picture in my photo-editing software to see if I could get them to look more "corally" (is that a word??), but I failed, too. Either way, coral or orange, the card is very elegant and eye-catching. I love the design - I might actually try to come up with something based on that sketch later tonight. Hope you're doing okay!

This is really pretty. I like the color of the butterflies against your patterned paper. And I think there are just the right number of pearls.
